The Guardian

The smart speaker that answers almost any question

from The Guardian
Google Home is an excellent entry into the burgeoning smart speaker race that’s revving up between the big US technology companies. Amazon’s Echo and Alexa have a head start, but Google’s Assistant is highly capable in many ways, but strangely half-baked in others... Full review

For all its potential, still mostly an early adopter gadget

from Android Community
You probably already know whether or not you fall into the "early adopter" camp. If that's you, there's plenty of cool stuff to explore in Google Home beyond the core casting and streaming experience. If not, buy it because you want a good, stylish connected speaker that can occasionally tell you the distance between London and Edinburgh and remind you how many cups are in a quart... Full review

Help you be more efficient at competing those little tasks

from Coolsmartphone
Overall, with the new multi-account feature becoming available, the sensitivity of the microphones, the cleverness of the Google brain and the accuracy of the voice recognition, this is a device which can only get better and better... Full review

Good for synchronizing music

from The Wirecutter
Though great for starting an inexpensive multiroom audio system and more able to interface with some Google products, the Google Home is still catching up with the Echo... Full review

A superb AI hub

from IT Pro
Google Home is pretty much neck and neck with it's biggest rival, the Amazon Echo. That doesn't mean it's not an excellent product, though - especially for those who have already bought into Google's ecosystem... Full review
Expert Reviews

More fleshed out than Amazon’s

from Expert Reviews
If you haven’t already splashed out on an Echo, Google Home is an essential purchase. Aside from a handful of teething problems it’s a remarkable little home helper, and one I can’t recommend highly enough. Amazon’s Echo just isn’t as all-encompassing as Home and, as such, no other personal assistant comes close... Full review

A more powerful version of Google Now

from PC Advisor
We're excited by the potential of Google Home, but until it makes it to these shores the Amazon Echo will continue to build up its lead. Don't wait too long Google... Full review

Great future potential

from Pocket-lint
If you don't mind waiting for it to mature, then it's the speaker to get. It's better looking and better sounding too and, we suspect, has the potential to be the best voice-assistant speaker going... Full review
PhoneArena

Clean, functional, and beautiful

from PhoneArena
Google Home has a ton going for it. As a speaker, it's nice and loud, and not only can its music easily stretch across rooms, but its capable microphones support voice input even when it's far out of reach. The power of the Google Assistant also gives it some impressive voice-driven tools, and using it really can feel like you have your personal assistant on-call in your office... Full review
TrustedReviews

Easy setup and great design at a reasonable price point

from TrustedReviews
The Amazon Echo and Alexa maintain their crown for now, but the cheaper Google Home and the powerful Assistant have the potential to be better over time... Full review
